Former Panthers’ TE Greg Olsen is signing a one-year, $7 million deal that includes $5.5M gtd with the Seahawks, per source. Olsen visited and negotiated with Buffalo, Seattle and Washington but felt most comfortable with the Seahawks.
The 34-year-old is joining an offense that has been targeting the tight end more frequently in recent seasons. If Greg Olsen can remain healthy, he'll be in the conversation as a low-end starting TE for fantasy purposes in 2020.
CAR TE Greg Olsen - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints
Greg Olsen returned to action and was targeted five times last week against the Colts, but he caught just two passes for 33 yards as the Panthers’ offense looked stagnant. With Grier set to start the season finale against a pretty good Saints defense, it’s hard to get too optimistic about Olsen. New Orleans does rank 20th in aFPA to opposing tight ends, so there’s some upside with Olsen if he gets targets again from the rookie quarterback, but it’s too risky to count on for the championship game.
